Government is not the cause of the lock down churches but some Christian leaders - Pastor Chris

The Nigerian government has lifted restrictions placed on religious gatherings but based on regulations and guidelines.

Boss Mustapa, Secretary to the Government of the Federation and chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Corona Virus (COVID-19) stated this at the daily briefing on Monday.

“For clarity, this will apply to regular church and Mosque services. "Worshippers must wear face masks, maintain social distancing and properly wash or sanitize their hands before joining their congregation".

However, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy Church has expressed his disappointment in some Christian leaders who approved the new guidelines for churches to open.

The man of God also revealed why churches were lockdown in several countries.

" One of the reasons you still have lockdown of churches in several countries right now is not even the government. You will be amazed. It is church organizations that are keeping many churches locked up till now.The so called advisers of government.

" The government invited certain church leaders, consulting with them whether to open the churches or not to, they advised the government to keep the churches locked because of their own fear, greed and jealousy". He stressed

" These are the problems, nothing else. And they kept those churches locked but their days are numbered. Believe me. That is what has happened in many countries".

" The government wants to open the churches and religious leaders, particularly church leaders have advised government to keep churches locked.

I wonder, are they taking after Jesus? Are they taking after the apostles? They are the ones sending out modalities for reopening to churches under shameful requirement".

"Church leaders are telling church members no communion, no physical touch and if anybody is going to lay hands on the sick, they have to wear a glove. Did it happen in the church of Jesus Christ? He questioned

" You would think such an instruction came from sinners for which we should laugh..but to know that some Christian leaders would append their signatures to such document and send to churches.

It is another fiasco but like I said, don’t be angry at them, I am not angry at them. It just tells you where they have been. It is cruel.” He added.

Do you agree with the man of God, or you think otherwise?

Again, do you also think that, government's decision to open churches with strict guidelines was influenced by some Christian leaders ?
